If blind testing protocol had been observed, which I should think is the norm for an established and respected lab being commissioned to carry out a chemical analyses without prejudice. Then I would have thought that the origin of the sample would have been of little or no interest whatsoever.
As you state there would be no reason for the lab to vouch for the sample. Their professional duty would be to provide an accurate chemical analyses and no more.
The Egyptian courts and legal authorities have already firmly established that the sample did indeed originate in G1.
Otherwise there would be no case to answer.
